Yeah I'm a newbie to this high performance thing too. I have an 06 SXT 3.5 HO with auto stick also, but it only goes to 4th. Is drive or something considered the 5th speed, or have I gotten ripped off. What RPM should I be shifting at. Why don't I know this stuff
as said above, 5 = D its the fifth gear.
the rpm you should shift at will vary from:
1) track to track
2) driving preference
also in stock form, the trans will automatically upshift when using manu-matic/autostick. only after the predator tuning, can you disable the automatic upshift.
Thanks for the help guys
The reason i ask is cause ive heard if you have the 3.5L HO with 5 speed the Predator works great and its not so good on the 4 speeds and 2.7's
Wanting to see what it was i had and if the Predator would be worth it for me later down the road.
in bold, who told you that? where exactly is this info coming from?
it doesnt work for the 2.7L at all so far. whether or not they have plans remains to be seen.
as for the 4 speed, the transmission is the only thing thats really not affected (or enjoys gains via the predator). the tuner more or less has most of its performance gains via the engine. so since the engine is still the 3.5L HO the same stuff (outside of the transmission stuff) anyone else does and gains with the tuner, the 4 speed guys get as well.
i honestly, just wanna know WHO exactly keeps passing on alot of the bad info on the forums.
